Ingela A (au) wrote: A tough subject, dealing with a former killer member of the Camorra, who left for Germany to build a new identity and has to come to terms, after 15 yeas, with his past, on the background of a still actual emergency in Italy, that of rubbish in Naples: a difficult subject to handle, but solidly handled. The director proceeds with a highly controlled and steady direction, made up of sequence-shots, close-ups: this, together with clear-cut and sharp characters and essential dialogues contribute to an overall solid rendering of the drama, without parting with some increasing tension. Intensity gradually increases, indeed, supported by a tense narrative rhythm, probably partly ruined by the unlikely final slackening. Toni Servillo, awarded as best actor at the latest Rome film festival, makes a substantial difference, being his main role fit for him: his performance is truly great, intense, perfectly able to render the inner drama of a man trying to overcome a painful past, which will never abandon him.
Walter M (de) wrote: "Cerified Copy" is quite simply a walk and talk movie.(Since this is also an Abbas Kiarostami movie, there is also a car involved. Which is about the only innovation he brings to the table here.) And there's nothing wrong with that but this only works if you have something to say. Well, James Miller(William Shimell) thinks he might, considering he has just written a book about copies. He tries to express his ideas to an unnamed French woman(Juliette Binoche) who is an antique dealer living in Italy with her teenaged son(Adrian Moore). As mismatched as their chemistry is, they give a go at pretending to be a copy of other marriages, after a waitress makes the stereotypical presumption about their being married. But still, little is known about the man and woman's true relationship, giving the story such as it is little firm ground to stand on, in this movie which is nowhere near as clever as it thinks it is and also a meager copy of far superior movies.
